Thi Yeab in Gknerad— Will be mostly cold and 
damp even it'it should be very dry at certain times; 
it w ill. however, generally be considered a cold, wet, 
unpleasant year.

warm yet very unpleasant till in May; afterwards 

jfthe days are pleasant and the nights cool, a severe 

drought will follow; notwithstanding there will be 

- ime rainy weather. Grass and vegetables will

Simmh.k. — In the beginningit will be wet; followed 

; i heal and drought, so that summer crops

tning, and hail will visit different sections. 

mx.- Will be cold and damp; early freezing, 

followed by heavy thunderstorms. After tbe middle 

cold weather will set in. December will 

■up. but somewhat pleasant 

Winter.— Will continue till near April. In the 

heginning it will be damp with heavy rains. To- 

• arda the end of December winter will set in, with 

deep snow and cold, and continue long; hence the 

ity of preparing firewood and feed. 

\.; Crops. — As the spring will be cold and 

asant, and as there will be no continuous warm

Winter Grain will succeed well; waste no good 
weather in gathering, else the grain will grow and 
spoil. 

Fall Seeding. — Wheat and rye should be sown 
early, for it will grow slowly, even if it rain much. 

Fruit will fail on account of the cold, unpleasant 
Spring. 

Hops will not be plentiful, yet they will be good. 

Wine.— The nntage will be jight, in general it 
will fall off, mostly in the blossom. Whether much 
or little, the wine will be of poor quality. The fruit 
should be gathered early, but the vines should not 
be covered early ; even if it freezes early in Novem- 
ber, it will open again and not close up until in 
December. If the vines are covered up too soon they 
will be injured by the wet ground. 

Wind and Storms.— There wiil-be some 
severe storms, with thunder and lightning. 

Insects.— Snakes and toads will be abundant, 
and in winter, mice numerous. There will not be so 
many worms in the grain as in other years, and they 
Will be destroyed by the severe cold in winter.

the fall, many dangerous and fatal diseases will pre*

THE FAMILY ALMANAC. 



WE need not tell you that every family 
wants an Almanac. This has been de- 
cided long ago, as there is no one thing so uni- 
versally found in all families of civilized nations, 
as the Almanac. Even the Bible, the best of all 
books, cannot be excepted. This being true, its 
character cannot help but have some kind of an 
influence over those who peruse its pages — the 
father and the mother and the big children and 
the little ones all are familiar with almost every 
line in. Therefore the best should be pre- 
pared and introduced into our homes. In pre- 
paring matter for the Brethren's Almanac we 
have kept this fact in view, and believe that the 
present number is made up of reading matter that 
cannot fail in exerting a healthy Christian influ- 
ence to the families into which it may enter. 

To the Ministerial List we have given unusual 
care, and we believe we have made it as reliable 
as it was possible to do under existing circum- 
stances. There will no doubt be some mistakes 
and some names omitted that should be in. But 
these omissions will have to be laid to the charge 
of those whose names are omitted, as timely 
notice was given and every name inserted that 
was sent to us. 

To our patrons we extend thanks for past pat- 
ronage and hope that this our Almanac for the 
year 1888 will be quite as good and interesting 
as its predecessors. And as our Heavenly 



Father has blessed us in the past, may we con- 
tinue to be the recipients of His love and favors 
during the present year. 



THE MOTHER. 



Oh ! if there be linked with the gloom of existence 
One feeling, that deepens the darkness it wears, 

'Tis a fond mother's fear, that forsees, in the distance, 
Her infant sent forth to the world and its snares. 

Shall that face, a sweet well-spring of smiles, soon be 
sadden'd, 
Those weak trembling hands be uplifted to sin ? 
Shall the heart, which scarce heaves on her bosom, be 
madden' d 
By pain from without, or by passion within ? 

Is there none, then, to care for the desolate stranger, 
Who goes, all unheeding, unarm'd, on his way? 

No spirit of might to walk near him in danger, 
And scatter the fiends that would make him prey ? 

Oh ! yes, there is One, and besides Him no other 
The Redeemer, the Ruler, whose throne is on high ! 

From the glories of heav'n He beholds the sad mother, 
'Mid the songs of the angels he catches thy sigh. 

Go, take thy sweet babe, and to Jesus confide him, 

He has dwelt in our flesh, he can feel for our fears ! 
Take this lamb to the Shepherd, who safely will guide 
him 
Through the desert of perils, the valley of tears ! 

—Sel 



AN ELOQUENT PASSAGE. 



IT cannot be that earth is man's only abiding 
place. It cannot be that our life is a bubble 
cast up by the ocean of Eternity to float a mo- 
ment upon its waves, and sink into nothingness. 
Else, why these high and glorious aspirations 
which leap like angels from the temple of our 
hearts, forever wandering unsatisfied? Why is 
it that the rainbow and clouds come over us with 
a beauty that is not of earth, and then pass off 
to leave us to muse on their loveliness ? Why is 
it that stars which hold their festival around the 
midnight throne, are set above the grasp of our 
limited faculties, forever mocking us with their 
unapproachable glory? And finally, why is it 
that the bright forms of human beauty are rep- 
resented to our view and taken from us, leaving 
the thousand streams of our affections to flow 
back in Alpine torrents upon our hearts? We 
were born for a higher destiny than earth. There 
is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where 
the stars will be spread before us like islands that 
slumber on the ocean, and where the beautiful 
beings that pass before us like shadows, will stay 
forever in our presence.

TEN BUSINESS RULES. 

TO SECURE SUCCESS IN LIFE. 

Motto. — " Call on business men on business, during 
msiness hours ; transact your business, and go about your 
msiness, that others may attend to their business. 

OFFICES, stores, and other places of busi- 
ness are established for business purposes. 
t cost time, care and money to maintain and 
onduct them. The results are in proportion' to 
he talent, industry, and attention bestowed on 
he business. A concern which is run without 
business rules or order, will not only fail, but 
vill spoil young employes, who become irregu- 
ar, inattentive, slovenly, indolent, and shiftless. 

1st. Promptness is indispensable. Each em- 
)loye should always make it a rule to be " on 
ime," so as not to deprive his employer or 
)thers who may require attention of his pres- 
ence ancTservices when needed. If he be ten 
ninutes behind time, it may cause ihe loss of 
:ime to ten others. Ten times ten minutes are 
1 hundred ! 

2d. Diligence, is not only a duty to employ- 
er, but it secures promotion and increased remu- 
leration. One may not always be pushed with 
svork, in which case he should push the work, 
md fill up his time as best he may. 

3d. Losing Time. — One may be disposed to 
talk and gossip about matters not connected with 
the duties of the office, which not only consumes 
their own time, their employer's, but that also of 
listeners. How indignant would he feel if 
charged with robbing; and, as "time is money," 



is he not robbing who wastes another's time? 
One has no right thus to " fool " away time for 
which he is paid to work or to attend to business. 

4th. Vigilance. — To be vigilant in business, 
not slothful, is a Divine command. It is the 
duty of an employe to be watchful, wide-awake, 
and mindful of his employer's interests. Mere 
" killing time " till the clock strikes the hour to 
quit won't do ; such indifference and neglect 
will neither secure more pay nor promotion. 

5th. Economy. — Each is in duty bound to 
see that nothing is wasted, paper, twine, tools, 
books, etc. He is also expected to exercise his 
mind as well as his hands in the interest of the 
business. 

6th. A shirk or an eye servant watches the 
clock impatiently to have the time arrive for 
lunch or to quit, and is sure to be ready to drop 
any duty the moment the clock strikes. He is 
not so careful to be on hand in the morning. 
Then, he is " in the drag." Such persons are 
seldom up with their work, and often fail to keep 
their promises. They are always unfortunate, 
and never rise in life. 

7th. Integrity Pays. — Let it be understood 
that " this office aims to do an honest business." 
Everything must be on the square. Should a 
customer over-pay when making a purchase, 
return him the amount. Should the cash receipts 
be over, or under, continue the investigation till 
the error is found. 

8th. Politeness. — A rough, rude, uncouth, 
ill-tempered cur, boy, curmudgeon, or man, is 
a nuisance in any business concern, and tne 
sooner he be set about something to which he 
is adapted, the better. He will drive away cus- 
tomers. One who stinks of whisky, beer, or 
tobacco is unfit to stand behind a counter and to 
wait on customers. One who is polite, patient, 
kindly, neat, tidy, talkative, honest, friendly, 
and capable of reading character, to know who 
wants to purchase, and who simply wants to look 
at the goods, is best adapted to the place, and 
will soon make his services indispensable. 

9th. A Good Penman and Quick in Fig- 
ures. — To excel and turn off work well, and 
wite dispatch, one must write a handsome hand, 
and be able to compute figures rapidly ; also to 
make change quickly and correctly. Bungling 
or delay in these is inexcusable. 

10th. Aim High. — Honorable aspiration in 
any callieg is laudable. No useful work is 
menial. A true lady will grace the kitchen no 
less than the drawing-room. It is just as hon- 
orable to sweep and dust an office as it is to 
wear laces, or count coppers, or keep accounts. 
The boy who runs on errands, or carries parcels,

We need not moralize here, though we will 
taggest that the chances of the boy who abstains 
4 :om the use of tobacco and alcoholic stimulants 
all always be the best. If he goes to Sunday- 
shool, takes an active part in religious devotions, 
e will be better fortified against yielding to or- 
inary temptations, and will grow in grace, and 
1 a knowledge of God and His righteousness. 
Le will rise. 



WRITTEN PRAYERS.— The venerable 
Thomas Williams, in conversation with 
devoted ritualist, was discussing the subject of 
Vritten Prayers. This gentleman claimed that 
he whole Bible did not furnish one unwritten 
rayer. ' ' No, sir, not a single one, sir. " "Do 
ou really think so ? " " Yes sir, I defy you to 
oint out a single scripture prayer that was not 
written. You can not do it." " Well, can I 
sk you a question?" "Certainly you can." 
'Tell me, then, who held the candle when 
onah read his prayers when in the whales belly. ' ' 



COURAGE IN THE RIGHT. 



There may be some who'll gibe and sneer 
At honest effort, but 'tis clear 
That he who dares to do the right 
Shall some day conquer in the fight, 
If, heeding not the scoffer's cry, 
He march right on e'er faithfully. 

The grandest victories ever won 

Are blessings sent for good deeds done ; 

And richer far than crowns of gold, 

Or gems of fabulous wealth untold, 

Is that bright crown of gratitude • 

The world gives to its brave and good. 

Oh, toiler standing at the plow ; 

Oh, workman with the sweating brow, 

Yours is the mission to fulfill 

The carrying out of Heaven's will ; 

And yours the triumph of success, 

If bravely on you ever press. 

Take courage, then, and do your best : 
There'll surely come a day of rest, 
When sweetest flowers shall strew your way, 
And chill December turn Jo May ; 
March with a hero's firmest tread — 
' Be sure you're right, then go ahead ! " 

—Sel. 



HISTORY OF THE OIMANITES. 



AT different times in the history of our broth- 
erhood, have brethren become dissatisfied 
with the church on some joint of doctrine or 
church government. And in refusing to hear 
the church in the settlement of the matter, be- 
come separated from the church, thus organizing 
a seperate body. The above is true of the 
Oimanites, sometimes called New Dunkards. 

Elder Peter Oiman lived in Carroll, County, 
Ind., and was a man of considerable talent and 
influence. About 1845 ne began to express him- 
self dissatisfied with some of the views and prac- 
tices of the church. He took exceptions to ask- 
ing the applicant questions in the water, also the 
restrictions on the apparel question. I believe 
he advocated the single mode of feet washing, 
also that the Lord's supper should be on the 
table during feet weshing. 

Among those who was led to join in advocat- 
ing Oiman's views, was George Patten, a young 
minister of considerable talent, living in another 
locality. The condition of things in the local- 
ity of the church, where these views were ad- 
vocated became serious ; and as usual, the spirit 
of the reformed element painful. Repeated 
efforts were made to adjust the difficulty, but it 
finally resulted in the organization of the body 
known as the Oimanites.

BRETHREN'S FAMILY ALMANAC. 



[188S. 







as 



They adopted Congregationalism which speed- 
introduced new measures into their body, 
man died in a few years after their organiza- 
»n and their prosperity seemed discouraging, 
the course of time they introduced single 

o-fckward immersion. They retain the table 
t have dismissed the meal. They practice the 
utation of the kiss at feet-washing. Practice 
en communion. Admit secrecy in all its 

4(lms. Do not prohibit legal swearing. In 
*ir apparel make no restrictions. Of late 
ars they have been more successful in adding 

^mbers. They report five or six hundred 

lumbers, located mostly in White, Carroll and 
intion, Counties, Indiana. As a closing his- 

. y of the Oimanites, I have recently learned, 

•to it they have affected a union with the Church 
God, sometimes known as Winebinarians. 

4£ visions and withdrawing elements from the 
ferent religious bodies, forming themselves in- 
separate organizations are, and have been 
mmon. Usually, however, the bodies thus 
med, retain something near their original prin- 
ces. But strange as it may seem, all the 
;hdrawing elements from us as a church, have 
til recent date, all either withered, or been 
sorbed by other bodies. 



The point which you ought to think of is not 
ether people are agreed or disagreed to be- 
ve in God, but whether or not he is worthy of 
ur allegiance. 



THE WAY TO DO— IS TO DO. 



NEVER, herhaps, has the world asked after 
deeds as now ; never has it been so impa- 
tient of thought, so eager for fact. It cares 
little for the preliminary process by which a 
result has been reached ; it is the result itself in 
which it is interested. Facts are not to be de- 
nied ; therefore, facts must ever be more potent 
than words. What a man does, we accept as 
proof positive ; what he says, we fling to the winds 
when it contradicts the deed itself. A man talks 
of a new scheme or a new invention, and we 
laugh at him ; he accomplishes it and we honor 
him. What, therefore, the present age demands 
is doers, not dreamers. To insure success in 
almost any undertaking implies the harness, the 
reins, and the workshop. A man who is anxious 
to achieve must consent to lose himself for a 
while, if need be ; he must be satisfied if he is 
learning how ; but few are willing to put forth 
this effort which lies at ihe foundation of all 
true success. We are such an impatient people 
that each in turn tries to jump the stream by 
which a careful knowledge is attained ; If we 
get across, no matter how, that is all we ask for, 
and then we begin to scramble np the steep and 
slippery banks on the opposite shore. We con- 
sole ourselves by saying, " Who knows how we 
got over? we're here in the ranks, that's enough!" 
But the climbing soon shows the difference, and 
who have made suitable preparation for the 
journey. The world wants workers, but it wants 
skilled work ; if we can only meet this demand 
there is enough for us to do ; if we can not, no 
one cares to hear the reasons why. To dream of 
success and to put forth the effort which secures 
success are altogether different affairs ; and so, 
while the requirement was never so great as now 
for those who have ability to do and achieve, 
the world is full of dreamers, talkers, praters ; 
people who imagine they know all things because 
they can talk about a few, and who really know 
nothing. The great demand is, "Show us the 
proof! can you do this thingof which you prate? 
then we want you ; if not, go ! " At one time, 
when Sparta was in distress, envoys were sent 
from the surrounding states to assure her of their 
willingness to render the needed assistance. One 
rose and made an elaborate address, in which he 
detailed the generous liberality of his country, 
and specified what service she would render her 
sister state. As he seated himself, another rose 
and remarked quietly, "What this man has 
said, I will do." Workers are apt to be reti- 
cent. It is the thought, then the action; their

THE NEW TESTAMENT. 



We love the book of Matthew, 
Of Mark, and Luke, and John ; 
The life of God our Saviour 
Is what they dwell upon : 
The Acts, and then the Romans, 
Two Corinthians you see ; 
Galatians, and Ephesians, 
Bring Christ to you and me. 

Philippians and Collossians, 
Are next in order here, 
Thessalonians and Timothy 
In twain they both appear : 
Then Titus and Philemon, 
And Hebrews, rich in truth. 
With James, and two of Peter, 
Instructs all age and youth. 

John writes to little children 
And gives epistles three, 
While Jude discourses plainly 
Of what we all should be : 
The last is Revelations, 
To all the nations sent ; 
And thus we have completed 
The whole New Testament. 



ASTONISHING ACCURACY OF THE BIBLE. 



AN astonishing feature of the word of God is, 
that not withstanding the time at which its 
compositions were written, and the multitudes of 
the topics to which it alludes, there is not one 
physical error — not one assertion or allusion dis- 
proved by the progress of modern science. 
None of those mistakes which the science of each 
succeeding age discovered in the books of the 
preceding ; above all, none of those absurdities 
which modern astronomy indicates in such great 
numbers in the writings of the ancients — in their 
sacred codes, in their philosophy, and even in 
the finest pages of the fathers of the church — 
not one of these errors is to be found in any of 
our sacred books. Nothing there will ever con- 
tradict that which after so many ages the inves- 
tigations of the learned world have been able to 
reveal to us on the heavens. 

Persue with care our Scriptures from one end 
to the other, to find there such spots; and whilst 
applying yourselves to this examination, remem- 
ber that it is a book that speakes of everything, 
which describes nature, which recites creation, 
which tells us of the water, of the atmosphere, 
of the mountains, of the animals, and of the 
plants. It is a book that teaches us the first 
revolutions of the world, and which also fortells 
its last. It recounts therh in the circumstantial 
language of history, it extols them in the sub- 
limest strains of poetry, and it chants them in 
the chasms of glowing song. It is a book which 
is full of Oriental rapture, elevation variety, and 
boldness. It is a book which speaks of the 
heavenly and invisible world, whilst it speaks of 
the earth and things visible. It is a book which 
nearly fifty writers of every degree of cultivation, 
of every taste, of every condition, and living 
through the course of fifteen hundred years, have 
concurred to make. It is a book which was 
written in the center of Asia, -in the sands of 
Arabia, and 8 in the deserts of Judea ; in the 
court of the temple of the Jews, in the music 
schools of the prophets of Bethel and Jericho, 
in the sumptuous palaces of Babylon, and on the 
idolatrous banks of the Chebar ; and finally, in 
the center of the western civilization, in the 
midst of the Jews and of their ignorance, in the 
midst of Polytheism and its idols, as also in the 
bosom of pantheism and its sad philosophy. 
It is a book whose first writer has been a pupil 
of the magicians of Egypt, in whose opinion the 
sun, the stars and the elements, were endowed 
with intelligence, re-acted on the elements, and 
governed the world by a perpetual alluvium. It 
is a book whose first writer preceded by more

EXAGERATION. 



E have heard a story of an old brother 
who had such an extravagant way of 
ing that uncharitable people said he was an 
Skbitual liar. His reputation was such in his 
= >mmunity that he was an injury to the church, 
d he was arraigned with a view to being ex- 
uded, in order that the church might be rid of 
e reproach which his connection with it had 
ought upon it. When arraigned he made a 
iblic confession of his guilt, and proceeding to 
y more denunciatory things of himself than 
ly of his brethren felt, or were inclined to say 
;ainst him. Said he, "Brethren, I know my 
q, and I confess it ; and, brethren, it gives me 



much more trouble than it does you. To tell 
you the truth, brethren, I have shed an ocean of 
tears over it." 

Indeed there is scarcely a more common fault 
than this. Instead of confining one's statements 
to the strict bound and measure of the truth, 
some men color, stretch, add to, and magnify, 
until nothing they say is taken without many 
"grains of allowance." The fault may arise 
from a disregard to truth, when it is an inten- 
tional habit of lying. Or it may arise from a 
careless habit of loving to make things appear 
grandly, which do not deserve the measure of 
importance which their extravagant speech indi- 
cates. Life is as a general thing, prosy and 
monotonous, bereft of romance and stiring in- 
cidents which find such a congenial home in 
their fanciful brains, and they atone for this lack 
by " piling on the agony. " Or it may arise from 
an undue desire for self-promotion, which leads 
the individual to magnify everything in any wise 
calculated to enhance his own importance, which 
grows into a habit, and is afterwards transferred 
to things not personal to himself. For instance, 
a pastor wishes to change his location ; he visits 
a church, and they ask him if his old charge is 
willing to give him up. " Oh ! " says he, "they 
are very far from it, I mentioned a few weeks 
ago in my pulpit that I should change my field 
of labor, and there was scarcely a dry eye in the 
house." Well, they did regret to loose the 
brother, but old sister Jones was the only one 
that made any pretense of crying, and it seemed 
hard work for her. Why, then, did he say there 
was scarcely a dry eye in the house ? And if his 
statement ever gets back to his old charge, the 
uncharitable ones will immediately say the par- 
son told a lie. But tell a downright lie the par- 
son would not for his right arm. 

The story of the little boy who ran breathless 
to the house and told his father that the woods 
was full of wild turkeys, but who af erwards was 
willing to swear that he did hear something gob- 
ble, is an apt hyperbole of the conversation of 
many people, both in and out of the church. 
Reader, are you guilty of exageration ? If so, 
it is shameful, sinful, and oftimes mischievious. 
Quit it. Speak the truth and nothing but the truth. 
"Sound speech," said Paul to Timothy, " that 
can not be condemned, that he is of the con- 
trary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing 
to say of you." " If any man offend not in 
word, the same is a perfect man, and able to 
bridle his whole body." 



The tree does not withdraw its protecting 
shade from the man that hews it down.

PARENTAL SELF-CONTROL. 



1 , ELF-CONTROL is one of the first and most 
^ useful lessons for the child to learn, and one 
' -equiring as much wisdom and patience on the 
^iart of the parent and teacher to impart as any 
13bther. Indeed, parents and teachers, unfortu- 
nately, often find it difficult to practice the vir- 
- :ue they seek to inculcate in the little folks. 
Those who have not been trained to self-control 
[j ire not likely to train their own children in that 
,. virtue. A story is told of a very profane man 
whose boy had learned to swear. But the father 
H'knew it was a bad and wicked habit, and wished 
to break his son of it, though he continued to 
jj set the example, He took the boy out to a 
thicket, where he could get plenty of sticks to 
whip the bad habit out of him. As it happened, 
the thicket was only a hundred yards from the 
houses of several of the neighbors, who could 
hear the blows and hear the father swear at his 
boy for swearing, and then whip some more and 
stop and swear again to impress the boy with the 
turpitude of his misdoings. This was about as 
ridiculous as was the noisy speech of the man at 
the peace society's meeting, in which he stated 
that he was for peace, and he " was determined 
to have peace if he had to fight for it." 

Self-control, however, does not relate merely to 
the curbing of the passion of anger. One may 
be sensative as to place, position, preferment, 



praise, property. To subject one's pride or 
pleasure of another, in a conciliatory and 
kindly spirit, may be, in some, so easy and nat- 
ural as not to rise to the dignity of a Christian 
grace ; but in the average of us, such self-abne- 
gation as would lead us to so high a virtue might 
well be reckoned as a Christian grace. The 
more effort one has to make to subdue and rec- 
tify natural infelicities of disposition, the higher 
the grade of virtue should be esteemed. If one 
rises from ignorance, poverty, and other unfavor- 
able associations to education, wisdom, wealth, 
and honor, the world accords to him special re- 
spect for the marvel of successful effort exhibited. 



UPS AND DOWNS. 



THE world is full of ups and downs. All 
around us are men climbing up to be tum- 
bled down, or creeping down to be lifted up. 
Before destruction is pride ; before honor is hu- 
mility. Satan lifts men up, that he may hurl 
them down. God casts them down, that he may 
afterwards lift them up. When men have climbed 
to the highest point, they have nothing to do but 
to come down. When they have gone to the 
lowest depths, then, if they move at all, they 
must rise. 

Men seek honor through pride. God gives 
them shame, to teach them humility. When 
they learn to choose His way, and receive what 
He appoints, their short humiliation is succeeded 
by enduring exaltation. Satan's road is up, and 
then down. The Lord's path leads down, and 
then up. Men climb the mountains of pride, 
and plunge hence headlong into horrible pits of 
darkness and despair. God takes men out of 
the horrible pit and the miry clay, and sets their 
feet upon a rock, and establishes their goings. 

David walked in the valley, and feared no 
evil, for the Good Shepherd was with him. He 
who stands on the pinnacle of the temple is quite 
likely to have Satan for company ; and his only 
object in taking Christ up there was to coax him 
to cast himself down. Learn to be meek and 
lowly in heart. God hath respect to the humble 
but he knoweth the proud afar off. Beware of 
climbing with Satan, lest you fall as he fell, — 
like lightning from heaven. 

— »-i 

It is said that the following remedy for ear- 
ache has never been known to fail ! Take a bit 
of cotton batting, put upon it a pinch of black 
pepper, gather it up and tie it, dip in sweet oil, 
and insert in the ear. Put a flannel bandage 
over the head to keep it warm. This will give 
immediate relief.

BEYOND. 



Beyond the mountains and the main 
Lie lands where roses bloom again, 

All glorified ; 
The sweet, fair roses, white and red, 
That in love's bosom found their bed, 

And then — have died. 

Beyond the valley and the stream 

Lie lands where youth's immortal dream 

Waits later age ; 
Therein love lingers, looks, and longs, 
And sings the old familiar songs 

On life's worn page. 

Beyond ! beyondj oh, lands of love ! 
If close at hand your confines prove 

Or far away, 
Oh, lands beloved ! I grow more fond 
Of happy hopes that lie beyond 

Life's little day.

DRESS PLAINLY. 



SOME one has given the following reasons why 
people should dress plainly on Sunday. These 
reasons are as valid any other day in the week : 
It would lessen the burden of many who now 
find it hard to maintain their place in society. 
It would lessen the force of temptations which 
often lead men to barter honesty and honor for 
display. If there was less strife in dress at 
church, people in moderate circumstances would 
be more inclined to attend. Universal moder- 
ation in dress at church would improve the wor- 



ship by the removal of many wandering thoughts. 
It would enable all classes of people to attend 
church in unfavorable weather. It would lessen 
on the part of the rieh, the temptation to vanity. 
It would lessen, on the part of the poor, the 
temptation to be envious and malicious. It 
would save valuable time on the Sabbath. It 
would relieve our means from a serious pressure, 
and thus enable us to do more for good enter- 
prises. — Mothers' Msgazine. 



BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE. 



THE trials of life which seem greater than 
we can bear are often only " blessings in 
disguise." Mav good come out of evil? In 
early Christian times the question was asked, 
" Can any good come out of Nazareth? " We, 
short-sighted mortals, often deplore conditions 
which, if rightly used, would tend to our good. 
We ask that we may escape cares, trials, respon- 
sibilities, and even work ! Nevertheless, all 
these things are blessed to our use. And so is 
adversity, when we have enough grace to accept 
the situation meekly. " To whom much is 
given, much is required." Have you great abil- 
ities? rare gifts? great strength? great riches? 
and will you not exercise them in the interest of 
the less fortunate and the poor? Curses will 
come on you and on your to the seventh gener- 
ation ! You must use your talents, strength, 
abilities, riches, or they will corode and bring 
evil on their owner. 

Welcome the duties of life, the cares of life, 
the struggles of life, and even the trials of life. 
They" are for your good. Have you lost proper- 
ty, position, influence, fame? It should tend to 
wean you from life's vanities, and reconcile you 
to the life to come. Has death seperated you 
from loved ones ? Accept the lot, and realize 
that they have simply " gone before " — that you 
will meet again. Are you on the brink of 
another world, just ready to let go of this? Did 
not He teach you the way? and can you not 
say, "Thy will be done?" How beautiful is 
Faith ! and oh, how comforting ! 



No wise man would seek to be exempted from 
the healthy disciple of trouble, any more than 
an intelligent child would wish to be excused 
from school, and be allowed to play all day and 
every day in the meadows. No: we are not 
butterflies that flit from flower to flower ; life is 
real, life is earnest, and the tonic of sorrow 
braces and strengthens us to make it so. — Spur- 
ge on.
